Learner centered environments honor each student's uniqueness.
All members of our learning community foster a culture of reflective practice.Hope: It takes a community to educate a child.
Successful education depends on the united efforts of all community members including families, students, and educators.
Every educator guides each child to fulfill his or her potential and be a lifelong learner.
Educators should hold high expectations for students, model daily learning, and guide students to set standards-based learning goals.
Ongoing multiple assessments drive instruction.
Assessments should be accurate, varied, and relevant to students'
strengths and challenges and to standards-based learning goals.
Educators should help students develop skills, attitudes, and habits which will aid current and future success. These include:Self discipline and time managementInformed decision-makingSelf-direction in learning and goal-settingOrganizational skills
Ability to form respectful, productive relationshipsEnvironmental stewardship
Ability to collaborate in workPhysical, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual wellness

They say it takes a community to raise a child. At Flat Rock-Hawcreek we could not agree more. During the 2015-2016 school year we are fortunate enough to have 292 volunteers. Each one playing a vital role in the education and extra curricular success in our students lives. Thank you for your time and support. It does not go unnoticed.
May's healthy tip is healthy snacks for kids of all ages.
*Keep junk food out of the house.
*Go for grain. Whole grain foods such as grain pretzels or tortillas and high fiber, whole grain cereals provide energy with some staying power.
*Mix and match. Use dips with vegetables, graham crackers & fruit. Spread peanut butter on celery, apples or bananas.
*Broaden the menu. Offer different fruits and vegetables. Use a variety of colorful snacks.
*Revisit breakfast. Offer breakfast foods as an afternoon snack.
*Sweeten it up. Healthy snacks do not have to be bland. Satisfy that sweet tooth with low fat pudding, frozen yogurt, frozen fruit bars and smoothies.
*Have fun. Use cookie cutters to cut cheese and breads. Make fruit kabobs, funny faces out of fruit or spell words out of pretzels.
* Promote independence. Keep veggies and fruit snacks ready to eat in the refrigerator. Keep baggies filled with healthy items where kids can reach them.
*Do not be fooled by label gimmicks. Check nutrition labels.
*Designate a snacking area. Avoid connecting snack time with screen time.
*Be active everyday and enjoy healthy snacks.
Thanks to the Mayo Clinic for these snack ideas.
